Homecoming a great time to get involved

Study the Lord's intricate gospel

While the Israelites had no children's-story Bibles, they were given pictures of the Gospel in the Old Covenant types and ordinances. Among them were the Passover, Exodus, sacrificial system, festivals, priesthood and ceremonies of the Tabernacle and Temple worship. There is one picture to which I often have loved to return – the picture of the Ark of the Covenant.

I heard a story one time about a church that was looking for a new pastor. When asked what they were looking for, the chairman of the search committee said that they only had two main criteria.

Keeping God in your life, part 1

As Jesus was concluding what has become known as the Sermon on the Mount, he said, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof" (Matthew 6:33-34). In this, we are told to put God first in our lives and not to concentrate all our beings on the physical things of this life.
